    Marriott International has announced it has signed an agreement with Cotton Bay Holdings to introduce a Ritz-Carlton Reserve on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The proposed resort will be a highly personalized leisure experience, blending the signature Ritz-Carlton intuitive service with local design and stunning natural landscapes. Located on the southern end of the island, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Eleuthera is expected to feature an open-air resort with 90 intimate guestrooms forming part of the community once known as the iconic Cotton Bay Club. A range of select luxury amenities and exceptional services are slated to include an 18-hole golf course, a lavish spa and swimming pools, and restaurants all surrounded by pristine beaches, azure waters and tropical flora and fauna.

    “We are thrilled to bring the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand and service to this pristine island in the Great Bahama Bank,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Chief Development Officer, Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott International. “We are excited to partner with Cotton Bay Holdings in developing this luxury resort, where the original Cotton Bay Club was built in 1959.”

    there are also plans for 60 Ritz-Carlton Reserve branded residences, which are expected to include a mix of two to five-bedroom villas. Designed in the same unique architectural style of the resort, each privately owned residence will offer refined design, and a one-of-a-kind luxury experience for owners.

    “We are pleased to work with Marriott International to bring the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand and experience to one of the most exotic and secluded destinations in the Caribbean,” said Daniel Zuleta, Manager for Cotton Bay Holdings. “We are excited to make this project a prime example of business, environmental and social excellence. Our plan for the project takes into strong consideration the role of the local communities and their active participation for its success.”

    Ritz-Carlton Reserve is a complete escape to the unexpected – a private and transformative travel experience that is centred around human connection and brings together unique elements of the local culture, history, heritage and environment. For the most discerning travellers seeking a personalized and luxurious escape, Reserve properties are tucked away in the rarest corners of the world, featuring chic, relaxed and intimate settings that weave native flavours with highly responsive and individualized service. The Eleuthera development is set to join the five properties currently under the Reserve brand by Marriott International, located across Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
